Developer Commentary

"The only design work I did for 'X7' was to give advice on Axl. I said, 'If we're bringing in a new character, just make sure you give him a distinct silhouette.' Over the years, I came to realize that when you draw robot characters, it's mighty easy for them to fall into similar shapes. That's why I was very careful about X and Zero's silhouettes when I was designing them. Axl ended up with protrusions on his head and a gun in his hand to make him unique." - (Keiji Inafune)[1]
"Since Axl wasn't supposed to have come from the typical 'good guy' mold, I gave him a nice big scar on his face and went with a lot of black in his coloring to give him an overall dark feel. I wanted his hair and the details of his face to exude youth to emphasize the fact that he was born after X and Zero." - (Tatsuya Yoshikawa)[1]
"Since this is a new playable character, I was very careful about him, but from a relatively early stage I already had an image of a black body and a clean silhouette due to the key features such as using a gun, being from a vigilante group, and being a thug. I designed the large core and red lines on his body based on his ability to absorb the enemy's powers." - (Concept Art Room)[2]
